Hello there.
My name is Bobby, and I’m the one behind the lens at Idlewild. Idlewild started with a passion for capturing raw, real and emotive images, capturing true intimacy. I bought my first camera when I was twelve, and began shooting things from live music to travel, then found my love for capturing people in love.

Fun facts about me: I love to snowboard, I play the banjo, and I can rip a phone book in half.

A bit more about my approach
I'm about capturing you for who you both are and what your relationship is.
I know how seriously weird it can feel to be in front of the camera, so I keep things as laid back as possible to make you feel comfortable. I'm not about being a fly on the wall, but I'm not about making you put your shoes or jacket on eight times to get a different angle. I'll capture your day as it happens, up close and amongst it when you need me to be, and hidden from sight and shooting from the corner when you don't.

And most importantly, I'm about filling your day with banter and lols and making photos fun.
WHATEVER YOUR ADVENTURE AND PLANS FOR YOUR DAY MAY BE, IT DESERVES TO BE REMEMBERED FOR DECADES TO COME.
Not some posed pinterest version, but the real and raw version.

ABOUT IDLEWILD

Why Idlewild?

Stolen from the pages of my favourite childhood book:
-
'… and right in the corner there is a little ring of white birch trees - the most romantic spot. We call it Idlewild. Isn't that a poetical name? I assure you it took me some time to think it out. I stayed awake nearly a whole night before I invented it. Then, just as I was dropping off to sleep, it came like an inspiration.'
